EU leaders divided ahead of key summit

Angela Merkel rebukes counterparts, saying eurozone debt will not be shared "in her lifetime".

    European leaders appear to be divided ahead of a key summit on Thursday.

    She also offered very little comfort to Spain, whose prime minister has told his parliament that their debt is becoming unbearable.
